This is my own take on the Marvel universe, taking place after the Avengers movie, but not any of the Phase 2 movies.
That battle, all those years ago…. That was the end of the world. This. This is the new world.
The battle of New York was the turning point in the history of the world. Not only were superheroes fully introduced into the world, but also supervillains. Some showed their colors soon after the great battle, others waited patiently; waiting for the right time to strike. The year is 2022, a whole decade after the formation of the assembly of The Avengers. Much has happened since then, more superheroes have surfaced, some of them making their own teams and groups to fend off the rising villains. Since then, crime has lowered by a great amount. The most of it being stopped by the Avengers; The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, they have kept the world safe, but have slowly been faltering. The world has moved on, and although greatly appreciated, they are being left behind. Suddenly, the earth is under a new threat, and the most frightening thing out it is that no one knows what it is. Multiple attacks around the world have been recorded, and have been reported as “To chaotic to be organized.” Without need in the past couple years, the Avengers has been disbanded. They need to assemble once more. From the start of the announcement, Steve Rodgers knew that this was going to be a bad idea for all of them. Although usually being the counterpart in this situation, Tony agreed with him. Bruce had gone off to do better things with his newly found free time, Thor was much too busy with having to rule over Asguard, Hawkeye and Black Widow left the team, seeing that they were only human compared to the others. Steve took the free time to fully adjust to living in the modern age, where he couldn’t before due to having to work and train all of the time. Tony and Pepper were running Stark industries, but had offered to help the next group of avengers.
The original team agreed to assemble once more, to find the next group that would take their place, the Next avengers.
